ENDICOTT, Charles Moses, author, born in Danvers, Massachusetts, in 1793 ; died in Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1863. He was a descendant in the eighth generation of Governor John Endicott. His education was received mainly at the Phillips Andover academy and at a school in Salem, Massachusetts. At the age of fifteen he entered the counting room of his uncle, Samuel Endicott, of Salem, where he remained two or three years, and whence ha went by invitation to the counting room of Williiam Ropes of Boston. Influenced by a desire to see somewhat of the outside world, he went as supercargo to St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1812, and afterward made a voyage to the east in the same capacity, visiting Calcutta and Sumatra, and returning to Salem in 1818. After this he became captain of a merchantman, and traded for many years, being engaged extensively in the importation of pepper. Later, from 1835 till 1858, he was cashier of the Salem bank, Salem, Massachusetts. He was a frequent contributor to the "New England Historical and Genealogical Register," and to the Boston "Gazette," under the pen name of "Junius Americanus." Some of his papers are to be found in the " Collections of the Salem Institute." He wrote a " Life of John Endicott" (privately printed, 1847); "The Persian Poet: a Tragedy"; " Essay on the Rights and Duties of Nations "; and " Three Orations."
